Officers Show Up to Watch Teen's Basketball Game Honoring Fallen Deputy

On Saturday, in Dallas, Georgia, police crowded into the stands of a high school basketball game. Yet, it wasn't for enforcement--it was to honor a fallen comrade.

On Wednesday, father of three Raymond E. Morrical, 52, died of a massive stroke. His wife Tammy said, "He was in perfect health so far as we all knew." His son, Andrew, a sophomore, is a player with the East Paulding Raiders. Morrical was a deputy with the Cobb County Sheriff's Office.

In addition, he was a veteran of the United States Marine Corp. Morrical loved watching his 16-year-old son play basketball. Since he couldn't be at their most recent game, his fellow officers came out in uniform to show solidarity with the teenager and his family.

Resident Savannah Rae Paul was at the game and said, "I look up and I just see what feels like hundreds of officers. I was in such amazement and my heart felt so happy seeing all those officers there supporting Andrew even though his father couldn't."

Tammy told Daily Mail Online "Andrew was absolutely amazed at the turnout and everything that they have done for us has been amazing--the sheriff's office was [my husband's] family."

Morrical is survived by his three children and several grandchildren.
